Hi, hopefully this is a simple question with a relatively simple answer.
We have a disabled son who is having a rather tough time entering the job market as an eighteen year old. We know that he will eventually find something but with jobs the way they are, chances are he will be stuck in a rather minimum wage job for some time.
But we want to allow him to have the kind of independence any eighteen year old man would want and to that end we thought it might be a good idea to purchase some kind of trailer and park it on the backyard concrete slab behind the enclosed wall away from public view.
But the city codes for Downey are incredibly confusing and, after looking through them for two hours I am more confused than ever.
So my question is: Is it legal to purchase and park a SMALL residential trailer in your backyard away from public view and allow someone to live in it in Downey, provided you have a backyard paved concrete slab to park it on which still allows for one automobile parking space next to it?
By "SMALL" I am talking less than twenty feet in length and no wider than an ordinary parking space.
Is it legal to connect water and electricity to it while it is used for living quarters?

All you need to do is call city hall. They will be able to answer your questions. I know people do that with motor homes so dont know why a trailer would not be allowed.

I think we came to the same conclusion, Downetite.:-)
I think we're going to go visit City Hall next week.
